Nom.

That’s pretty much all this tasting note needs, as far as I’m concerned, because isn’t nom the whole point? if nom can be achieved, what else even matters?

So….

nom.

Seriously, I hope this tea isn’t at risk of being discontinued, although the fact that it isn’t listed on David’s site anymore doesn’t exactly bode well.

So the smell and the taste actually reflect one another perfectly: so if you don’t like the way this tea smells, you certainly won’t like the way it tastes. Either way, you get a fresh blast of jumbled berries, mostly blueberry and raspberry, I feel. I can also very distinctly taste the acai powder. By that I mean that I haven’t tasted actual acai (I’m not even sure what it is), but it tastes like other things that are flavoured with acai. There’s a bit of tartness in the aftertaste, and I imagine this comes from the juniper berries, which you can’t directly taste while you sip. The whole composition also tastes as though it should be a bubble tea with tapioca balls in it, because that’s what I was instantly reminded of when I began sipping. I honestly don’t know why this tea has such low ratings. I mean, I doctored it up with some milk and sugar, but it still tastes exactly how it smells. It would seem that today would be the day for berry tea!

I have this one but haven’t yet tried it…looks like a cuppa might be in my near future!

Haha! Totally, nom is the point!
But I also like to have some non-nom , they help my tea knowledge grow sometimes :-)

Yes, the occasional non-nom is important for sure, but nom is definitely the hope! haha

Bio

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
